BARCELONA, May 09, 2013 (AFP) - Sergio Perez said on Thursday that he and his McLaren team-mate Jenson Button will 'respect each other' more when they fight for race positions in the future.

Following their wheel-banging clash at last month's Bahrain Grand Prix, the 23-year-old Mexican and the 2009 world champion were summoned to a meeting with team principal Martin Whitmarsh and sporting director Sam Michael.

That discussion helped them clear the air after an intense battle in the desert where Button appeared close to losing his temper after making several angry radio calls to the team.

Perez told reporters at the Circuit de Catalunya ahead of this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix that lessons had been learned and added that he expected both of them to behave differently should they find themselves in a similar tussle again.

Perez said: "We know not to risk that much with your team-mate... We were too aggressive with each other, we lost time and I think that has to be a little bit different between us.

"We can't waste too much time - and especially at this stage of the season where the tyres are so critical, we wasted too much tyre. So we have to be more flexible in fighting.

"We are thankful we are in a team like McLaren where they let you fight as team-mates, so we have to respect each other a bit more."

Perez said he welcomed the talks with Button to go through the different views he and his team-mate had about their fight in Bahrain.

"We talked, Jenson and myself, to apologise to the team. We were quite aggressive and close to having an accident," he admitted.

"The chat was mainly to clear the air, to say everything that was going on between us, and to clean the relationship.

"Now, we need to be together to come out of the position we are, where we are not quick enough at the moment. We have to keep working very closely, Jenson and myself.

"So the chat we had with Sam and Martin, it helped to keep the relationship strong and keep the team together to get us out of a difficult moment."
